February is National Heart Month – Face the Fats

February is National Heart Month – Face the Fats

American Heart AssociationSince I’m in school, I’ll give you a “homework assignment” for this week! The American Heart Association has a unique “Face the Fats” webpage with information on the different types of fats in foods. I found the short “tutorials” very informative and interesting. The topics covered include: “The Bad Fats Brothers,” how to not let them break your heart, “Fats 101,” a crash course on the different types of fats, “Chef Alton Brown’s Ideas” for heart healthy cooking, and “My Fats Translator” to calculate how many fat calories you need each day.
So, make sure you do your assignment and learn about the different types of fat!
